Some of Our Initiatives
Attorneys and staff here at Perkins Thompson often contribute their time and energy to serving their communities. Some serve on the boards of nonprofits, some volunteer regularly, and some are even presidents of impactful organizations. Community engagement is a central part of our identity as a Maine law firm; to provide guidance where it is needed, lend a helping hand to those around us, and support causes we are passionate about. Find out some of the initiatives we are involved in below, and perhaps you’ll be inspired to take part in contributing to your community!
